The Counsel to the Corporation presented a re- 1 
port in relation to the power ofthe Council to ;!

The report is as follows : 

Office of Counsel to Corporation, I 

Chicago, April i8, 1868. f ] 
To the Common Council : 

Some time since a petition of saloon keepers of i 
the city, requesting the Council to pass an ordinance i 
requiring brewers " to keep a lawful measure for | 
the sale of their beer, so that every keg, | 
half barrel or barrel be markea," <tec., 
was referred to the Judiciary Committee. ' 

That Committee, doubting the power of the i 
Council to pass such an orainance, recommended ; 
a reference of the question to the undersigned, ; 
which was made accordingly. , 

The power to establish a standard of weights and ; 
measures is vested in Congress by the Constitution | 
of the United States. So far as I am advised (and 
Ihavematie a careful examination) Congress has ' 
never exercised the power, so as to fix the I 
standard of measure for barrels, half barrels or I 
kegs. ' 

The State, doubtless, in the absence of any legis- 
lation upon the subject by Congress, might have 
established such standard, but it has neither done ; 
so or authorized the Common Council to do so. i 

There being then no law fixing any standard 
of measure for barrels, &c., or authorizing the 
Council to fix one, I cannot see, however neces-' 
sary or proper an ordinance such as asked for 
might be, the Council can pass it. 

It seems to me. to be a proper subject of legisla 
tion for the Legislature, but not for the Common 1 
Council as the law now stands 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

S. A. IRVIN, 
Counsel to Corporation. 

The Board of Public Works presented a report 
and ordinance, authorizing the Atlantic and Pa- 
cific Telegraph Company to erect telegraph poles I 
on certain streets, which, on motion of Aid. Bar- 
rett, was 

Referred to the Committees on Streets and Alleys 
of the South and West Divisions. With instruc- 
tions to report at the next regular meeting. 

Also, 

A report and ordinance authorizing the leasing 
of 8, 40 feet of block 43, O. T.

CHICAGO, May 14th, 1868. f 
Walter Kimball, Esq , City Comptroller, Chicago, 
111.: 

Dear Str:— We find it necessary to recommend 
that appropriations be made for repairs on three of 
the leading thoroughfares of the South Division ;— 



these approriations to be in addition to the general 
appropriation for street repairs and cleaning, as set 
iorth in our annual estimate, already in your hands. 
These additional appropriatlans are as follows viz : 
For making a graveled roadway on 
Prairie avenue, from Twenty-Ninth to 
Thirty-First street, and thence on Thirty 
First street from Prairie Avenue to Cot- 
tage Grove avenue • 55 5,0t0.00 

For cindering Archer avenue sufficient to 
repair the roadway from Ogden slip to 

Reuben street 5,000.0u 

For repairs on Cottage Grove avenue 6,000.00 

^15,000.00 

We respectfully ask that the items as above speci- 
fied may be included in your statement to be re- 
ported to the Council. . ^ ^ ^ 
^ J. McArthur, ) Board of 

W. H. Carter, [Public Works. 

To Walter Kimball, Esq., Comptroller of the city of 
Chicago: 

The Board of Health of said city would respect- 
fully submit the following estimates of expendi- 
tures required by the Health Department to ena- 
ble it, upon the most economical basis, to carry on 
its operations for the current year, viz. , 

For scavenger work. South Division $15,650.00 

For scavenger work. North Division.... 12,571.00 
For scavenger work, We^t Division 14,898.00 

Total ' .,i42;619.00 

This part of the expenditures has been fixed by 
contracts already executed for the next two years, 
public advertisements for the contracts having been 
made in all the city papers, and the work let to the 
lowest responsible bidders. It will be seen that 
the amount ig|considerably more than that paid the 
past year, but it will be borne in mind that the pop- 
ulation has greatly increased, and is spread over a 
much more extended territory, and that the work 
was not satisfactorily performed because the num- 
ber of teams employed were not sufficient for 
a satisfactory performance of the work. This and 
the ensuing year the work is to be performed to 
the satisfaction of the Board without regard to the 
number of teams employed. 

For Sanitary Police « • • • • S>17,M0 

The Board consider that this work can be satis- 
factorily done, with a less force than was employed 
the last year. It is believed that the services of a 
Sergeant and three Division Superintendents may 
be dispensed with, and that during a great part of 
the year 20 men, the number now employed, will be 
all that will be found necessary, except perhaps in 
midsummer; and that during the winter months lb 
will meet all wants. The salary paid is $900 each 
person, and itistnought 117,000 will be adequate 
to meet all expenditures. 

For Sanitary Inspectors • 5)b,4UU 

The Board consider that 16, (1 for each Ward) 
will be all that will be required, and that their sal- 
ary should be $400 per annum. The experience ot 
the past year lully demonstrated the importance 
and necessity of this force, and it is believed 
that a great number of valuable lives have been 
saved through their instrumentality, aside fro m 
the important services they have rendered i^aia- 
ing and carrying out the necessary sanitary meas- 
ures for promoting and securing the general tiealth 
of the city. During the past season the small-pox 
has prevailed to an alarming [extent and man^ 
thousands have been vaccinated and revaccmated 
by them free of charge. The P^J?!^^ schools have 
been systematically and thoroughly examined and 
the most efficient measures adopted to prevent tbe 
spread of that deadly malady ; and J^ut Jor the 
strenuous and efficient measures adopted,, and 
through their instrumentality carried out, it is be- 
ll /w dm an v more would have fallen victims to 
thTscCree^ wMle itis fully believed that the 
cUy is nSw pllced in a condition to prevent, in a 
great degreeffatal consequences, should it appear

over $7,000, but it is hoped and ex- 
pected that even including puttm?: in 
water pipes to bring water to the premises, 
and the cost of a new ambulance, both of which 
Items will amount to $700. that the whole expense 
will not exceed $6,000. and the Board therefore esti- 
mate that amount as adequate to their wants. 
Cholera Hospital, for superlntendance, repairs, 

&c J200 

We do not make any estimate for this Hospital, 
trusting it will not be needed. 
Printing notices, blank annual reports, books, sta- 
tionery, ordinances, &>c 13,000 

This amount may not be enough, and it may be 
more than will be required, though it Is believed to 
be very nearly what will be necessary. 

Disinfectants— Last year there was expended for 
this purpose $1,600, but great economy was used, 
and we estimate that the same amount will be re- 
quired the current one. $1,600 

Office rent 

Fuel, gas, water, postage, furniture, &c., — 500 
For sundry bills not yet audited, and for sundry 

small items not enumerated $581 

For alleys 

Total.... $91,000 

We estimate that as the aJleys are placed under 
the control of the Board of Health, this amount 
could be used with great advantage and economy, 
and the a leys placed In a much better sanitary con- 
dition if this amount should be^placed at their^dis- 
posal. . , . 

It will be seen that no estimate is made lor the 
pay of the Board, and that such amount must be 
added as the Council shall deem J ast and proper 
for their services. 

In connection with the duties of the scavengers, 
it is proper to say that their duty is to remove all 
asbes to such place as may be designated as well 
as dead animals, garbage, &c., and that during +,he 
past year over 7.000 loads have been removed and 
deposited as directed, for improving streets, filling, 
&c. 

By order of the Board of Health, 

SAMtJEI, HOAKD, 

Chairman Finance Committee.

Office of the Board of Public Workb, I 
Chicago, May 12, 1868 J ; 
2o the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of UhicagOy 

in Vommon VounciL asf>embled : | 

Tne Board of Public Works, at the last regular ; 
meeting of your honorable body, laid before the ; 
Council a list of sewers which in the judgment of 
the Board be laid this year, limiting the list 

to those sewers required on streets to be speedily 
paved. These sewers with their catch basins, 
drains, etc., it is estimated will cost all of, or more 
than that amount of money to be obtained from the 
honds which the city has authority to issue. 

As was intimated in the report already addressed 
to you, the Board are urged by numerous petitions 
to lay a great many sewers not includea in this 
first ii8t,but which are deemed by the Board desira- 
ble both for the general drainage of the city, and 
the sewerage of the special localities where it is 
desired that these sewers shall be laid. i 

A second list embracing sewers of this character 
is herewith transmitted to you. The Board have I 
no funds from which their cost can be paid for, nor 
have we any means for work of this character ex- 
cepting as shall be derived from the sale ot the one ' 
hundred and forty-one (141) sewerage bonds, the I 
issue of which has already been authorized by the 1 
Council, and which is the balance of the sewerage 
loan provided for by act of the last legislature.

Placed on file. , 

DBA.TH OF ALDBRMAN BARRETT. 

His Honor the Mayor said. 

Gentlemen of the Common Council : You 
have been called together to-night in conse- 
quence of the death of Mr. Stephen Barrett, one 
of the Aldermen of the Third Ward, and an earnest, 
capable, courteous, honest member of this Council. 
Knowing that you would desire, as is proper, to 
take some action in regard to the sad bereave- 
ment, I have called you together to-night. 

Aid. Wicker oflered and moved the adoption of 
the following preamble and resolution : 

Whereas. It has pleased Almiehty God, the Su- 
preme Euler of the universe, to remove from the 
scenes of earth, Stephen Barrett, an honorable 
member of this Council ; and 

Whereas, In the death of Alderman Barrett, we 
feel that the Council has lost a valuable member, 
the citizens of the vf ard that elected him a faithful 
and honest representative, and his family their 
dearest earthly friend ; and 

Whereas, While we deeply mourn and lament 
that dispensation of Providence which has taken 
from this body one of its honored members, we 
humbly bow to the will of Him who doeth all 
things well, and to the family of the deceased we 
tender oar deep and profound sympathy in this 
their great bereavement; be it, therefore. 

Resolved^ That this Council as a mark of respect 
to the memory of the late Alderman Barrett, do at- 
tend his funer&l, and that a committee of two from 
each division of the city be appointed by the Chair, 
to make the necessary arrangements. 



ALD. WIOKEE 

addressed the Council as follows : 

Mb. President :— As the colleague of Aid. Bar- 
rett, it perhaps becomes me to say a few words in 
reeard to his death. Aid. Barrett expired at 12 
o'clock last njght. He expected to have been at the 
council last Monday evening. Although for a long 
time past he has been m poor health, he was ever 
faithful in the discharge of his duties. He always 
desired to perform those duties, even at the sac- 
rifice perhaps ©f his life It was only by the earnest 
persuasion of his sons that he was induced to re- 
main at home last Monday evening. I was not 
aware of his sickness until Tuesday evening:. He 
was taken sick on Tuesday morning, and on Tues- 
day evening was insensible. He remained in that 
insensible condition till the time of his death, 
which, as I said before, was at 13 o'clock last night. 
Aid. Barrett has not been well, perhaps, for a year 
and a half. It will be remembered by many mem- 
bers of this Council that about that time he met 
with a serious accident by a fall through a hatch- 
way, since which time I presume there are those 
here to night who have observed that his health 
has been constantly failing. 

He has been a faithful servant to the constituents 
he represented ; he has been anxious, at all times, 
that he could do something to aid the poor people 
of his ward, and in every way that he could, he did 
all he could for them, both as a representative, and 
in sunplying their wants— for certainly he was as 
charitable a man as could be found anywhere. 

Aid. Barrett was born December 25th, 1810, and 
therefore, at the [time of bis death, was about 58 
years old. He was a native of Ireland, having been 
born in the city of Cork. He came to this country 
in 1838, and made his home in the State of Pennsyl- 
vania, settling for a time in Philadelphia ; from 
whence he removed to Pittsburgh, in the same 
State, where he remained until 1856, when he came 
to tt e city of Chicago, where he has remained ever 
since, and has been for the last nine years in the 
employ of the Illinois Central Kailroad Company, 
which in itself is an evidence of his good character, 
and the high esteem in which he was held. 

In 1863, Aid. Barrett was first elected a member 
of this Council for one year, being elected to serve 
out an unexpired term. After serving out the 
time, the people of the wara re-elected 
him for two years. They again elected him for 



May 22,] 



two years, and this spring thoy elected him 
for another two years, which, had he been permit- 
ted 10 serve out the term, would have made. In all, 
seven yearw' services In this Council, showing: the 
appreciation of the people of the ward in which he 
lived, of the valuable services that he had rendered 
in the discharge of the responsible duties imposed 
iipon him as one of their represeniatlves in this 
Council. 

Another mark of the high esteem in which Alder- 
man Barrett was held, is found in the fact tnat at 
the'time of his death he was Presideut of the St. 
John's Conference of the Saint Vincent de Paul 
Society— was a member of the Particular Council of 
the St. Vincent de Paul Society, and of several 
other societies. He was always active in the dis- 
charge of his duties, and could ever be found where 
the poor stooa In need of help. It was from these 
acts that he stood so high in the esteem of the peo- 
ple, and the triumphant manaer in which they sus- 
tained him, shows how great was tneir appreciation 
of tils chflrsictGr 

I first became'acquainted with Alderman Barrett 
in 1863. Ir, will be remembered by members of this 
Council, that the people were then engaged in solv- 
ing the great problem of liberty. Drafts were be- 
ing called for in connection veith the solution of 
this great problem. The State of Illinois, ana the 
city of Chicago nobly responded to the calls thdt 
were made fer men, and at first they filled up their 
quota, but subsequently drafts had to be resorted 
to. 1 was myself engaged in trying to retain at 
home the heads of families— and it was in connec- 
tion with this that I first met Aid. Barrett. His 
strenuous efforts.his untiring exertions to save from 
the draft the husbands and fathers of the poor were 
extraordinary, and were continued for two years. 
In subscriptions, in work, and in fact doing every- 
thing he could for them, he was worthy the grati- 
tude of all. 

He has proved his loyalty to the cause of the Union 
hy ijiving his time, ana as frealy ofhii money, to 
the extent of his means, as any maa in this com- 
munity. 

Sir, he has done bis duty as well as any of us 
can hope to do in this Council. He has been faith- 
ful as a representative of his ward, and has con- 
trived to do his whole duty Every one of us 
knows that Alderman Barrett has been efficient as 
a representative. He would come to every meet 
ing of the Council at whatever cost. 

Alderman Barrett is no more. It would perhaps 
he well for this <;ouncil to consider reverently the 
lesson of his death, and to emulate the virtues of 
his life. He has been a faithful servant. He has 
gone to his home, and I hope wi 11 receive the re- 
ward which is promised to a faithful servant by his 
Lord. , . I , 

ALP HOLDBN. 

Mb. President:— When the call for this meeting 
was handed to me this morning, I littie thought 
what its contents were. On opening it I was 
shocked more, 1 think, than ever beloro, for I did 
not dream of such a thing as the decease of our 
friend and co laborer, Aldern-an Barrett. I aid 
know, as we have all known, that he fell and re- 
ceived therefrom severe injuries, something like a 
year or more since ; but I did not know of any in 
juries so serious as to threaten to take him away 
hence I sav that I was truly shocked at tbe sad in- 
telligence contained in that communication. 

In the spring of 1863, Stephen Barrett was elected 
by tbe citizens of the Third Ward, to repcesent 
them in tbis Council. Since then he has been with 
us continuously. With his doingf , we are all wel 
acquainted. I believe, as Alderman Wicker stated, 
• that Alderman Barrett was a good man in every 
sense of the word. Being a member of a commit- 
tee which has oft times liad claims presented by 
Alderman Barrett, reoresenting as be did. the 

floor, not only of his own but of other Wards, I 
requcEtly wondered how it happened to fall to 
him to take hold of the claims that he presented to 
this committee, bat it does me good now to say, 
M.r. President, that Alderman Barrett never repre- 
sented or urged a claim against the city but that 



when it was examined, was found to be correct. 
Not a single instance comes to my mind at this 
time, and when I say this, it is saying a great deal. 
It shows that he knew the p<irties with whom he 
was dealing, and that be would not represent to the 
city any matter that was not just in every sense. 
It has happexed to be my lot to be connected with 
the same great corporation as Alderman Barrett, 
for the last many years. I was 
talking with some of the offi- 
cers of that corporation to-day— I have reference I 
to the Illinois Central Railroad Company— and } 
when I say they feel as do we ail, I feebly express 
their sentiments. Thev have always had tbe ut- 1 
most confidence and faith in Stephen Barrett. 
They have retained him for many years in the same 
position, and have always looked upon him as a 
man of truthfulness and correctness in all his 
dealings, not only with them, but with all men. 

He has gone! (Overcome by his feelings, the 
speaker burst into tears.) This reminds me that 
we too will soon, one by one, get called upon to go 
hence, never more to return, for such is the will of 
Him who holds us in the hollow of His hand. 

ALD. M'ROY, 

Mr. Chairman : There are times in which words 
fail to express the feelings of the soul. I have been 
associated with Aid. Barrett for a considerable 
period of time during his official life as a member 
of this Council, ana I knew him for some time pre- 
viously,. and I have always found him to oe a 
courteous, urbane gentleman, always studying to 
do what he believed to be right, and willing to 
award to every member of tbe committee of this 
council the right to think and believe as he thought 
was right; and when I heard about two hours and 
a half ago, for the first time, of his death, I was 
shocked. Of his falling health I have known for 
weeks, but I did not anticipate such a sudden ter- 
mination of life as I heard of this afternoon. I feel 
that the citizens of Chicago have lost one of their 
best and one of their most persevering officers in 
the search of duty, and in its discharge as 
he understood it— in this city— Aid. Barrett 
He has gone ! we shall see him no more ; but we 
roust and will always bear in miud to remember 
the character which'he has borne among us. and 
his gentlemanly conduct towards every one. I was 
opposed to him both in politics and religion, but 
we have never disagreea. We have never met, Mr. 
President, where any thing of the kind has oc- 
curred, no matter how we might differ on the sub- 
ject, ana ?he has always been gentlemanly and 
Kindly, and the best of leeling has always prevailed 
between myself and him, and so far as 1 know, the 
rest of the members of the committee. 

I feel to-niffht, sir, that the city of Chicago has 
lost one of their best, one of their worthiest, and 
one of their trustiest servants, and, as I started to 
nay, words fail me to express the feelings of my 
heart to nigbt. He ever strove to do what he 
believed to be right. We are here, thirty-two 
men, to do what we believe to oe right. We 
differ, as it is reasonable we should diflfer. in our 
ideas of what Ip right. There is this in the con- 
duct of Aid. Barrett : Whether we agreed or dis- 
agreed upon any subject in this Council, no one 
has ever had a word of difficulty with hica. If we 
differed we differed as gentlemen. 

I believe his sole aim was to do what he believed 
TO be right; and I believe the city of Chicago has 
lost in him a worthy, a good, and efficient officer. 

We shall see him no more In this Council. An- 
other man will come here to take his place, as is the 
nature of things ; but we shall always miss the 
worthy old man with whom we have been asso- 
ciated so ions, and whom we knew srt well. Every 
member here well knows he was one of those who 
tried to do his duty according to the dictates of 
bis conscience. 

ALD. SHERIDAN. 

Mr. President— I cannot well resist the im- 
pulses of mv heart to say a few words by way of 
expressing," however inadequately, the deep

sincere regret which I and every other member 
of this Council feels at the departure from amonsj 
ns of our associate, co-laborer, and dear friend, 
btephen Barrett, A little over two weeks ago he 
was here, in this Council Chamber, in the discharge 
of his duties. He is no morel By his death it 
seems to me that the country has lost one of its 
most worthy and honest citizens, the city one of its 
most faithful officers, and we ourselves, a valued 
friend. For a few years past death has made an 
annual visit to our body. Let us hope that this last 
great victim which he has snatcbed from among us, 
may appease him, and that hereafter we may not 
have the pain and sorrow of an annual death. 

ALD. WOODARD. 

Mr. Chairman— I desire to hear testimony 
to the many virtues of our departed com- 
panion and friend. In running my mmd back 
over the several years in which I have been ac- 
quainted with him, no unpleasant recollections 
come up He has ever given to my mind the evi- 
dence of an honest. Christian gentleman. Every 
unfortunate man or woman who nas sought charity 
or j ustice in this council has found in him a will- 
ing, honest, and earnest advocate. Indeed, his 
very hesitation, which sometimes almost appeared 
to be a fault, in giving his vote, was but the 
Btruggiineof an honest heart to arrive at a just 
conclusion. In obedience to the great law of 
growth and decay he has gone before us. We all 
believe that the world Is better and purer tor his 
havinff lived in it. and if he were to speak to us to- 
night he would ask us to honor his memory by 
avoiding his errors and emulating uis virtues. 

ALD. WALSH. 

Mr. Pbesident— I suppose, sir, as a member 
of this Council, I should be the next, in 
the natural order of things, to expeci to pursue the 
I same course that our deceased brother has been 
i called upon to pursue. 1 have had the honor to be 
j acquainted with him since his arrival in this city, 
I or thereabouts. I think I knew him full as well as 
any member of this body. We happened to come 
I from the same part oi Ireland, and we have been 
j associates together, more or less, for the last 13 
1 years, and during that whole time— official or other- 
wise— certainly nothing has occurred to estrange 
! us one from the other. I presume to have under- 
stood his faults, and I trust he did mine. But, sir 
I do not know what words to use to add to that 
which has already been paid, nor do I think it 
proper, under the circumstances, for me to say 
anything more. His colieagne from the ward has 
, uttered all I could possibly sav. I Icnow that in 
every benevolent Institution connected wifh the 
Church, of which he was a highly respected mem- 
■ ber, he has always been at the head— that he has al- 
ways been an ardent worker in the cause of benev- 
olence and charity. I know that the same charita- 
ble motives caused him to take the course he did 
during: the late rebellion. He knew his constit- 
uents needed his assistance in this matter, for they 
were of that class that could ill aiTord to have the 
head of the family taken away from the children, 
and he labored hard to relieve them from the dralt 
He labored for them not only then, but before and 
since, and I know he never relaxed his energy on 
behalf of the poor. 
Mr. President, while associated with us m this 
; Council, I have only to say that I would be very 
I happy indeed if I could control my temper, and be 
as courteous and as kindly to my associates as he 
I has always been. I will simoly add that he always 
I lived as an honest, conscientious and upright man 
and that so he died. ' 



ALD. KNICKERBOCKER. 

Mr. Chairman— 1 desire to add my testi- 
mony to what has already been said here 
tnis evening with reference to our late 
deceased associate. I feel that the resolutions that 
nave been offered here upon this occasion, and 



what has been said In indorsing these resolutions, 
express but the sentiments of every member of this 
council. I am sure that the conviction of these 
truths comes home with great force to those who 
have known him intimately. I first met Aid Bar- 
rett in 1S63. I think the first time I saw him was 
on an occasion when he was President or a draft 
meeting held in the Circuit Court room, in this 
buildinar. And 1 think there are but few who took 
a part in these proceedings, who can fail to ha-^e a 
distinct recollection and remembrance of Aid 
Barrett. 

Since he has been a member of this Council I 
have met him almost twice during each mmth, for 
three years as a member of the Committee on 
Streets and Alleys in the South Division. I do 
not think I ever knew of his becoming tired of 
looking after the best interests of those he repre- 
sented, and attending to the legislation that was 
going on before the committee in relation to the 
improvement of the city. I have often sat with 
him a whole evening, and chatted over the various 
improvements, and' various subjects of interest 
connected with the welfare of the citv, aad I al- 
ways found in him an earnest, and honest, and pa- 
tient laborer in the duties of his office. 

I believe there is no member of this Council that 
I have become acquainted with who has spent more 
time and more care in the discharge of his duties, 
and who has done it more consclentously than 
Aid. Barrett. 

It would be almost useless for anybody to at- 
tempt to pronounce an eulogy upon his Virtues, or 
upon his worth, as the many who knew him, and 
were acquainted with his excellent q.ualities, and 
who knew of his careful attention to his duties, 
and as especially Aldermen of this Council know. 

He is dead ; but I desire to add this simple and 
feeble tribute of respect to his memory. I leel, as 
has been said here to night, that it would be use- 
less to speak of his worth which is so well known. 
He has been careful, he has been earnest, he has 
been honest, and I believe in all his transactions he 
has been just, and I believe that he will meet the re- 
ward of his God in the world to which he has gone. 

ALD. COMISEET. 

Mr. President— I have not much to say after the 
euloglums that have already been expressed. I 
will say, however, that I have known Aid. Barrett 
for the last thirteen years in the city of Chicago, 
and the manner I became acquainted with him, in 
coming In contact with him in coneoction with a 
society for relieving the poor of the city of Chicago. 
His exertions on behalf of that institution were un- 
ceasing—in season and out of season— and we all 
believe to-night, if ever there was a man that died 
a martyr to the cause ot justice and charity, that 
man is our deceased brother. Aid Barrett. 
We know that he has been so conscientious that he 
has left a sick bed, on many occaeions, to attend 
to the wants of the people in his own 
ward and the city at large. Indeed, no later than 
the last minute, he was anxious, Inipresence of the 
fact that he could not be able to come to the 
Council on Monday night, to discharge his last sad 
duty in a matter which he had promised to attend 
to, and that promise came to his mind so vividly 
that he felt sorry that he should be compelled to 
leave unfilled the promise he had made. It was a 
promise, and a duty that he felt he had a right to 
perform— a duty which he insisted upon perform- 
ing—but he was prevented by the interference of 
his family. 

Now, Mr. President, I do not intend to say any- 
thing more. I believe that the character of Aid. 
Barrett is well known to every citizen of Chicago, 
and that every man and woman will join us in sor- 
row for his death, in reverence for his life, and in 
appreciation of his services to this city and to its 
people. 

The question then being on the adoption of the 
preamble and resolution, they were adopted unani- 
mously. 

Aid. McKoy moved that the preamble and resolu- 
tion, and the remarks of the Mayor and Aldermen,

the Common Council.

Aid. Barrett, and su^rgested that the Council meet 
in the City Clerk's office, on Monday morning, at J 
o'clock, and proceed from thence in a body to the 
house, to atteiid the funeral. 



Aid. Shackford moved that the Mayor request 
that all the city offices be closed on Monday next, 
from 9 a. ra. until 2 p. m , as a mark of respect. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. S. 1. Russell moved that the Council do now

ized to borrow, by temporary loan or otherwise, 
the sum of five thousand dollars— the same to be

RBPORT OF COMMITTEE. 

To the Jlay 07- and Aldermen of the city of Chicago 

in tJonanon VoimcU assembled : 

Your Committee on Finance, to whom was re- 
ferred communication from the Board of Police 
Oommissuoners requesting the Council to author- 
ize the Comptroller to borrow $5,000 for the pur- 
chase of tools, &c., for the use of the Fire Depart- 
ment, having bad the same under advisement, beg 
leave to report that vour committee have ex- 
amined the communication referred to them, as 



also the subject matter therein contained, and we 
find that the Board of Public Works have erected a 
machine and repair shop, large enough 
to accommodate the various depart- 
ments of the city— for necessary repairs, &c. 
The Board of Public Works propose to have all 
work done under their supervision, charging to 
other departments simply cost prices for labor 
done and material furnished. 

Each department will have to furnish its own 
tools— and as there has been no appropriation made 
heretofore to enable the Fire Department to lur- 
nish its proportion of tools, whereby to commence 
and do its own repairs as above stated— this tem- 
porary loan is asked for the time being, and we 
would recommend that the City Comptroller be 
and is hereby authorized to borrow, by temporary 
loan or otherwise, the sum of five thousand dollars, 
the same to be expended in the purchase of tools 
for the use of the Fire Department of the City of 
Chicago, and that the amount thus obtained be 
added to the estimates of the Fire Department for 
the municipal year 18fi8.

Co., for extra compensation for work done on the 
Hayes School BuiUling, sHl)mitted a report recom- 
mending '-That the Comptroller be authorized to 
pay to iVfcKeoa & Co. * 1, 040, in addition to their 
contract price of f2 747, tor work done on the 
Hayes School building." 

Aid. Dixon moved that the report be concurred 
in. 

Aid. Holden moved, as an amendment, that the 
report be laid over and published. 
Carried. 

The report is as follows : 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE. 

To the Mayor and Al dermen of the City of Chicago 
in Common Council Assembled : 
Your Committee on Schools, to whom was referred 
a communication from the Board of Education 
in relation to the petition of Messrs. McKeon & 
Co., for advance on the contract price for work done 
on the Hayes school building, having had the 
same under advisement, beg leave to report that 
there were four bidders to do the work contracted 
for by McKeon & Co.: 

E. Earnshaw bid |4,988 

JohnHorn8in& Co 4,600 

Miller &Newcomb.... --- 3,(iW 

McKeon & Co 3.747 

The petitioners claim that they made a mistake 
in the estimate by leaving out 26 stone caps worth, 
in the opinion of P. Banman the architect,J^40each, 
making a total of $1,040. They daim that it is the 
custom to indicate cap stones on the plans vyith a 
blue color, and that while these stones were 
marked on the plans, they were not colored, and 
hence were overlooked by them in making bids. 

Miller ife Newcomb make affidavit that they made 
the same omission in their estimate. 

This may account for the Qifi'erence between the 
bias of the said petitioners, Miiler & Newcomb, 
and those of Earnshaw and JohnHornsin & Co. 

We understand that the parties will lose money if 
they receive the pay for the stone caps. 

They did a good job for the city, and the work 
was worth their original bid plus 5^1,040. 

We believe that a mistake was made, and that it 
was not wholly the fault of McKeon & Co. 

They were not accustomed to taking contracts 
of this kind, and probably did not use that care 
that more experienced men would. 

If the city pays them all they ask, It will do 
as well as it coula have done with other parties. 

We believe that it is just to grant the prayer of 
the petitioners, and we recommend that the Comp- 
troller be authorized to pay to McKeon & Co. 



$1,040 in addition to th^ir contract price of $2,747, 
for work upon the Hayes School building. 
Respectfully, W. Woodard, 
John Herting, 
Patrick Rappkrtt, 
Committee.

inasmuch as no vote had been taken on the motion

sider must be made by some Alderman who had 
voted In the affirmative on the motion to lay over 
and publish, therefore the motion of Aid. McRoy

Branch between Polk and Eighteenth streets, a dis- 
tance exceeding a mile ; therefore, be it 

Besoived, That the Board of Public Works be,

substantial ferryboat, to be used for the con- 
veyance of foot passengers across the river at 
I Twelfth street until the bridge is completed.

ESTIMATES. 

Aid. Holden, of the Committee on Finance, to 
whom had been referred the estimates of the Comp- 
troller of the expenaitures of the city of Chicago, 
for the fiscal year 1868, submitted a report and 
ordinance tbereon. 

Aid. Calkins moved that the report and ordi- 
nance be laid over and published. 

Carried. 

The report and ordinance are aa follows : 

BBPOBT OF THE COMMITTBB ON FINANCE. 

The following report was presented by the Com- 
mittee on Finance : 

To the Mayor and Aldermen .*f the city of Chicago 

in Common council assembled ; 

Your Committee on Finance, to whom was re- 
ferred the annual estimate of the City Comp- 
troller for the fiscal year from April 1, 1868, to 
April 1, 1869, having ^had the same under consid- 
eration, beg leave to" respectfully report the ordi- 
nance appended hereto, making appropriation for 
the year ending March 31, 1869, and recommend 
the passage of the same : 

Your committee would state the amount 
called for in tbe Comptroller's estimate referred to 
them, to be $4,152,674.05, being $614,674 05 over ana 
above the amount called for by the Comp- 
troller for the municipal year 1867, in 
his estimates for that year, ana $1,334,( 06.63 more 
than the amount appropriated for the same 
year. The Council then reduced the esti- 
mates to come within a thirteen mill 
tax upon a valuation of real and 
personal property of 819^,037 866, and an estimate of 
miscellaneous receipts of f 300 OOU. 

Your conrmittee, after carefully examining the 
eatimates, which In the aggregate foot up as 
set forth, and which were based upon specific 
items from the various departments of 
Oftr mimicipal government, showing - the 



amounts in detail necessary to be expended 
in their respective departments during the fiscal 
year, have agreed to recommend the appropriations 
herewith submitted. 

The fact that $1,334,006.63 more was asked for 
this year than was appropriated by the Council to 
meet the expenditures of the year just closed, was 
sufficient cause for your committee to examine every 
item minutely, and to make such deductions and 
alterations as would reduce the grand total to an 
amount commensurate with the financial condition 
of our people and city. 

By an examination we find the valuations and 
amount of the taxes levied for the years 1864 to 
1867 respectively, as follows : 

Valuation. Tar Levied. 

1864 $48,733,782 $974,655.64 

1865 64,709,177 1,294,183,54 

1866.. 85,953,250 1,719,06.5.00 

1867 195 037,866 2,518,667,42 

From this we find that the increase m ine amounts 
levied from 1864 to 1866 was aoout 32 per cent, per 
year, from 1866 to 1867 about 46 per cent., and from 
1857 to 1868, according to the appropriations here 
recommended, will be about 31 per cent., thus in- 
dicating a steady and rapid increase in value and 
population that has heen fully provided for 
in appropriations for improvements, education,and 
protection of our citizens. So long as the city shall 
keep the expenses of the city government within 
the proportionate increase of valuation and popu- 
lation, she ought to be prosperous. But is it wise 
to tax beyond this ? We think not, and, therefore, 
hope that the amount here recommended will not 
be increased. 

In our examination we have made large re- 
ductions, among which are the following : 
We have reduced the amount asked for by the 
Board of Public Works for street improvements from 
$583,^53.60 to $283,000 last year the appropriation 
for this service was $177,i 00, of which $90,730.71 
was unexpended April 1, 1868, and which balance is 
now being judiciously expended for the.purposes 
for which appropriated, and we deem $283,000 
sufficient for the current year. We 
have made several other cbanees In the Board of 
Public Works appropriations, all, however, with the 
concurrence and sanction of the board. 

We have stricken out the two items of $30,408 
each— total, $60,816— for the purchase of ground 
and the erection theieon of fire 
engine-houses, and the equipment of the 
same, to be located, one on Twenty-second 
street near Center avenue, and one on Thirty- 
third street, near Wentworth avenue.

;[i86a. 



believing that this part of our 
city is fairly provided lor at this time, and lor 
the further reason that the streets where these large 
outlays are asked for are not improved, hence the 
eteam fire engines could not he available at certain 
seasons of the year on account of the condition of 
the streets. 

We have stricken out ihe iiem of $29,92U for a float- 
ing steam fire enfiine,doublin^ the propriety of ihls 
outlay when the same is but a malter«of experiment, 
which might prove of great utility, while on the 
other hand a total failure mij^ht eusue. 

We have reduced the amnuni asked tor by the 
Board of Ed ncation from $7v)5,(J00 to f 5S2 500. Last 
year the appropriation t\)r ihis purpose was $387,- 
486 99-the purchase of grounds and the erection of 
buUd'nes mereou having beea provided for by the 
issue and sale of !?chool bonds authorized for| such 
purposes. Of the |;582,B00 herein recommended to oe 
appropriated, mH-Z ^00 is for ihe paymeat of 
teachers and other exoeuses connected with the 
maintenance ot our schools, and $210,000 tor the 
purchase of grounds, the erection ot builaing8,and 
the purchase of furniture, fixtures, etc. 

Tills last named sum, toa-ether with the 
$3-2,0()n proceeds of the sale of school bonds, and 
$70,000 income from school fund and State tax, we 
deem sufficient, with economical and careful man- 
agement, for this purpose. 

We have made otter reductions and changes, as 
will more fully appear by comparison of the ordi- 
nance herewith recommended and the estimates as 
referred to ns ; and, after making such reductions 
and changes, the total amount herewith 
recommended to be appropriated reaches the 
large sum of $3.577,1.05.05, but large as this sum 
is, your committee can see no way by wtiich they 
could recommedd a greater reduction, knowing as 
they well do, that the youth of our city must be 
educated, and to do it ground must be purchased, 
buildings erected and furnished, and 
teachers provided; our streets have to 
be improved, our sewerage system maintained, 
our harbor dredged and protected, our fire depart- 
ment increased in its efficiency, our police force in- 
creased to protect our people and property, new 
fetation houses erected and ground for the same 
purchased, and new bridges to be bnilt, altogether 
requiring large expenditures. 

The Comptroller not having, m his estimates for 
the year, recnmn ended any appropriations for the 
ext ^nsion of the Court house, or the new Bridewell, 
both of which, it seems to us, should be com- 
menced the present year, we have not embodied 
in tnis report any appropriation for the same. 

We would, however, recommend the passage of 
the proper ordinance authorizing the Comptroller 
to issue for each of those objects the bonds of the 
city to the amount of ($100,000) one hunored thou- 
sand dollars, and that the work on both be com- 
menced at as , early a diy as possible. 

With these explanations and recommendations 
we respectfully submit this report to your honora- 
ble board, and ask your concurrence therein, and 
the passage of the ordinance as herewith sub- 
mitted. „ „

The communication is as follows : 

Chicago, 111., May^O, 1868. 
Honorable Common Council of the city of Chicago : 
Gentlemen: The undersigned Board of the 
German Immigrant Aid Society « Chicago, begs 
leave to represent to the Honorable|Cornmon Coun- 
cil, that the immigration of all nationalities from 
Europe to this country has taken this year larger 
dimensions than ever before, and will undoubtedly 
not abate for the next time. The greatest proportion 
of immigrants landing at the ports of New 
York Baltimore, and Quebec, settle m the North- 
western States, viz: Illinois Wisconsin, Iowa, 
Minnesota, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Colorado 
-and in order to reach their respective places of , 
destination they have to pass through this city as * 
the central point of the railroads leading to said i 

^?tTs evident that the crowded condition which 
immigrants are subjected to on steam or sailine 
shipe, while transported to the United States, and 
the conseauent want of the proper cleanliness and 1 
nourishment, produce contagious diseases, as j 
cholera, small -pox, &c ; and that said diseases are 
spread over the city by said ini^^g^ants, while 
stopping at emigrant houses. At New York city 
all the immigrants arriving there, after passing the 
quarantine, are landed at Castle Garden, where they jl] 
have to remain until they leave by railroads for 
their respective places of bettlement. At Chicago, 
however, neither the railroad companies nor the 
city authorities have, as yet, provided the necessary 
accommodations for immigrants arriving here, 
i and conseqently they are forced to fill the emigrant 
houses located in all parts of the city, and 
thereby endanger the health of the Inhabitanis. 
Believing that humane and sanitary consldera- 
' tlons reauire that some meat) s should be adoptee 
i for the protection of the immigrants, and to pre- 
! vent the influx of infective diseases by im mi grants t 
I passing through this city, we respectfully recomend i 
' to your honorable body the adoption of the follow- \ 
ing measures ; , . ^ . . 

1. An immigrant depot, spacious enough to re- *, 
i ceive about 1,000 persons, with bathing and cleaning ^ 
; rooms, should he established at some suitable i 
place near the city of Chicago, for the reception and 
i temporary stay of all immigrants arriving or pas- 
sing through the city. _ . . X.- -4. U„„1.1 1»0 

2 All immigrants arriving m this city should De 
bound to assemble in said depot, and should be ex- 
amined by one of the city physicians as to the coa- ■ 
1 dition of their health, and none afflicted with m- i 
: fectious disease should be allowed to enter tne^ 

^^^S Said immisrant depot should be put under ' 
the charge of some officer of the Board of Health, 
who should enforce all necessary regulations. 

The railroad companies located m this city 
should be induced to co-operate with tbe execution 
of this plan, and to contribute their share towaro i 
the maintenance of said depot. This society has 
neither the necessary means nor the public^ author- ■ 
ity to carry out the above plan, and therefore suB- 
mitsthis matter to the due consideration of yottri 
honorable body. Very respectfully, ^, . 

The Directors of the German Immigrant Aid so- 
ciety . ^ knobelsdorpp. President. 

Dr. Chkistian Fessbl, Vice President. 
Hbrbm. Kabstnbr, Secretary.

Your Committee on Finance, to whom was referred

recommending the cleaning of our improved streets

port, 

That your Committee, since the reference of the

ordinance authorizing the Board of Pablic Works 
to advertise for bics, and let in accordance with the 
amended City Charter the cleaning of the improved 
streets of the city of Chicago, for the term of three 
years. 

Office of the Board of Public Works, i 
Chicago, June 22, 1868. f 
To the Finance Committee of the Common Council 
of the City of Chicago 

The Board of Pubfic Worki- find that the law 
permits the city to make a contract that shall ex- 
tend beyond the limits of a fiscal year, and'be- 
lieving that a contract can be made more advan- 
taeeously by making it for a longer time than one 
year, we theretore recommend that the ordinance 
for making a contract for the cleaning of improved 
streets be altered so that the contracts can be made 
for three years. If so ordered, the contract can be 
made by the mile, and new Improvements can be 
added at the proper time by order of this Board. 

A suitable form of ordinance is appended 
Respectfully submitted, 

A. H. BURIiET, 

» J. Mc Arthur, 

W. H. Carter, 
Board of Public Works. 
An Ordinance directing that the cleaning of the 
improved streets of the city, for the term of three 
years, be let by contract. 
Be it ordained by the Common Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That the Board of Public Works be, 
and they are hereby, authorlzea and directed, in 
accordance with the provisions of the charter of

proved, and to be improved during the period of 
three years, commencing with July 1, 1868, and to 
let the same by contract for said term of three 
years to the lowest reliable and responsible bidder 
or bidders, according to specifications to be pre- 
pared by said Board.

ble parties for the cleaning of all of our improved

streets for the term of three years,8hoald he passed, 
for the reason that we believe a saving of 
from six to ten thousand doliais por annum can be 
had to the city hy so doiiior. We mii^ht say in ex- 
planation of the |Toat saving to be accomplished 
by lettmo; the couiraci foi- the length of limo rec- 
ommeudcd. that it is by introducing: expensive ma- 
chinery and the purchase of stock for operating the 
samo, that the work of cleaning on streets is to be 
^^reatlv cheapened. And no contractor would he 
justified iu purchasing such machinery and stock 
without beino; aAured tDat the work to he done 
would be for a 'ongth of time sufficient to warrant 
the outlay. 

We would respectfully ask the passlno: of the 
amended ordinance as herewith submitted:

Aid. Kafferty moved that the report and ordinance i 
be laid over and published. 
Carried. 

The report and ordinance arc as follows : 
To the Mayor and Aldermen ol' the City of Chicago 
in (/ommon Council aysemblcd : 
The undersigned, your petilioners. respectfully 
represent to your honorable body that ihey are. 
and for a long time passed, have been carrying on 
the business of juuk dealers in the city of Chicago 
and are now operating under licenses duly issued 
to them by the Honorable Mayor of said city, lour 
petitioners would further represent that it is impos- 
sible lor them to comply with section hve (5) ot 
chapter tweuiy-one (21) of the revised ordinances 
of said city, if the construction placed upon said 
section by the officers of said city is adbered to. 
That large numbers of poor people in said city, 
•md many of them foreigners who cannot speak the 
Wn^lish language, are engaged in collecting case 
away raes, paper, bottles, or other articles ot little 
or no value when taken separately, hut ot some 
value when taken m the aggregate, and of aispos- 
ino-ofthemto your petitioners, and are thereby en- 
abled to obtain something for the support ol them- 
selves and their families. That great numbers ot 
these persons come together to your petitioners 
respective places of business with the articles 
which they have thus collected, and in a large num 
ber of instances the aggregate value of the articles 
brought hy a single individual will not exceed 
twenty-five or thirty cents, while the articles ot 
such persons would number as high as two hun- 
dred, if counted. Under such circumstances, to 
require of your petitioners the delay ana trouble of 
writing down and keeping an account ot, and a 
particular description of each article would, as 
your petitioners conceive, be very injurious to j/our 
petitioners, and would impose upon your peti- 
tioners an amount of labor far exceeding the value 
of the articles purchased. ^ ^ 

Your petitioners would farther represent that 
their calling is in every way reputable, and is 
honestly and honorably conducted by them ; that 
they will most cheerfully acaniesce in and observe 
any reasonable regulations which your honorable 
body may prescribe, but they respecttully sribmit 
that the existing regulations as fixed under the 
interpretation given to the section above men- 
tioned, are unjust and oppressive. 

Your petitioners therefore pray that your honor- 
able body will repeal said section, or so 
amend the same as to make a distinc- 
tion between second-band and Junk-dealers, 
and that junk-dealers shall not be required 
to keep a minute record and description ot pur- 
chases of a less amount than one dollar, and also 
that foreigners who are unable to write the Eng- 
lish language be permitted to keep their records in 
their own language.

EBPORT OF COMMITTEE. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen ot the City of Chicago 
in Common Council assembled : 
Your Committee on Licenses, to whom was re- 
ferred the petition of the junk dealers asking lor 
sundry amendments to the ordinance now in force, 
having had the same under advisement, beg leave 
to report that we have, with Commissioner Brown, 
Judge Milliken, ana the Chairman of the junk 
dealers carefully examined the ordinance, and sub- 
mit herewith an amended ordinance which we 
think a needed improvement to the old one. 

The objectionable feature to the old ordinance 
was that it permitted dealers to purcnase from 
minors of all ages, and thus encouraged a species 
of small theft by boys ivho, if they could not find 
a purchaser, would not be guilty of the crimes 
th-it are now chareed to the 11. 

The main objection to the ordinance for which 
the junk dealers petitioned to be changed, 
is that as it now stands they are required to keap a 



record of all purchases of old rags and waste pa- 
per : this they claim is unnecessary, as they are 
purchased in small lots and are of so small value 
that no benefit to any one can result in a compli- 
ance with the ordinance, and they therefore desire 

You^^cmnmittee, on the recommendation of Com- 
missioner Brown and Judge MilliKen. have so 
amended the ordinance as to relieve the dealer 
from recording his purchases of old rags and 
waste paper, but charge him to record all other 
i.urcbases. We believe the ordinance,as amended, 
should receive the approval of the Council, and 
recoinmt;nd its passage. 

Respectfully su omitted,
